PETA has named the city of London 2009’s ‘Most Vegetarian-Friendly City’.

“We chose London after considering not only the city’s numerous vegetarian restaurants but also the massive variety of meatless ethnic cuisine and the fact that grocery stores and even steak houses in the city promote the mushrooming number of vegan options by indicating them with a green “V” on menus and labels,” the announcement reads. In achieving the honor, London beat out Peta’s other top five locales; Los Angeles, New York, Melbourne and Mumbai.

Mayor Boris Johnson welcomed the award, noting the city’s “noble history of vegetarianism”. ”London has soared to the top of the world’s culinary league tables in recent years, boasting a mind-boggling range of eateries,” he said. ”We have a noble history of vegetarianism, so it is great news to be crowned the best city on earth to enjoy meat-free nosh.” He added: ”We are helping to cultivate a taste for all things veggie by supporting green-fingered efforts by all Londoners to grow their own fresh fruit and veg.”

Paul McCartney also expressed pride in the award saying, “After 40 years of touring as a vegetarian, I’m proud to say that when it comes to eating, there’s no place like home.”
